From My Kitchen: February 2021

This is more of an update than a new recipe. Last month I tried Flatbread Mexican Pizza. If you recall, I wasn't too crazy about the flatbread. I knew I could improve on it! The second time I made it, I still used Mama Mary's, but I used the thin crust pizza. It was much better, but when I used Boboli thin crust, it was even better.
Here's what I did differently:
  • Used 1 thin crust instead of flatbread
  • Used 2 packages of taco seasoning (This resulted in more of a taco taste than just 1 packet)
  • Added a layer of salsa over the refried beans
  • Used 1 pound of ground beef
  • Used Chipotle Ranch dressing instead of the salsa/sour cream mixture
I think I've found the right combination of everything. I probably don't need to use the entire pound of ground beef. The last time I made it (using the Boboli thin crust) it was piled pretty high and was more like a pie instead of a pizza! I didn't have any complaints from CH or YS, though! 

I'm also not sure how much the refried beans actually add, except to add more carbs & calories. I'm going to try to leave that off next time and see if it gets noticed. I have a sneaky suspicion it won't.

Do you have a recipe that you have modified that is a family favorite? If so, please share!


  1. Mary,

    More than a year ago I began experimenting making home-made pizza from scratch - the dough and sauce. I'm so glad that I did! This has become second nature to me. Generally, I make a supreme style pizzas. This weekend, I'm going to change things up by making a cheesy burger style pizza. I can't wait to see how it turns out. Eventually, I may try making a Mexican style pizza. I love lots of toppings on my pizza and tend to go a bit overboard.

    Before I leave I wanted to point out your Gravatar profile that you use when you left a comment on my WordPress site does not have your blog URL listed. You may want to update it so others can find you when they click 'view complete profile'. Luckily I knew where to find you at Joyce's. :)

    Have a good day and thanks for dropping by, neighbor! ;)
